Oswego Fire Department crews were dispatched at 1:50 a.m. to a structure fire at 80 Tallman St.

They arrived to “a well-involved two-story residence.”

With good information from the homeowner that nobody was inside, firefighters employed hoselines from the exterior in a defensive posture,
protecting the nearby neighboring homes while knocking down the flames.

The residence is a total loss, fire officials said.
